Need Care Now?

Samaritan offers several options depending on the level of care and urgency of the care you need for non-life threatening medical issues.

When Should You Go to the Emergency Department?

Your health is important to us. There are times when symptoms are more severe and its best to go the an emergency department rather than waiting to see your primary care provider or going to a walk-in clinic.

If you have any of the following conditions, when your life is in danger or you could lose a limb (arm or leg), go to the nearest hospital emergency department:

  • Chest pain and heart attack symptoms
  • Stroke symptoms, such as facial drooping
  • Severe abdominal (belly) pain
  • Head injury with loss of consciousness (passing out)
  • Altered mental state
  • Seizures
  • Coughing or vomiting blood
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Severe or persistent vomiting or diarrhea
  • Large open wounds, uncontrolled bleeding
  • Major burns
  • Major broken bones
  • Spinal injuries
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, dial 911.

Insurance and Billing

Walk-in visits usually cost the same as, or slightly more than, the cost of regular physician office visits. They are significantly less expensive than the cost of an emergency department visit.

Please bring your insurance card and be prepared to submit any co-payment during your visit.
